"It won't be cuts that bring this government down, it will be incompetence" Me, since June 2010
I may have mentioned this once or twice before ;) Last week I concluded that they couldn't organise a sell off in a forest and this week things got worse.
Poor Mr Clegg, trying to enjoy a nice skiing holiday, got called back over the inconvenient little spat taking place in Libya. He had apparently "forgotten" he was in charge of the country.
Sipping from a mug marked “Deputy Prime Minister,” he said: “Yeah, I suppose I am. I forgot about that.
Meanwhile, though Nick had no trouble getting to his snowy retreat, Wee-Willie Hague had awful trouble getting a few people on a plane or boat himself. Stranded UK citizens were allegedly amongst the last to get out of Libya. Last out of recession, last out of Libya, seems to be a pattern emerging. Things got so bad, "Honest Dave" Cameron had to apologise. Rumour has it special voice coaches were required to overcome his natural inability to show humility.
Count Gideon Von Osborne wasn't skiing this week, but appeared to "lose" a speech. He was due to claim that :
"everyone earning £35,000 a year or less will have a lower personal tax bill as a result of next month's budget"
Ultimately it seems 17,000 or 1 in 10 jobs will be lost in the armed forces - a fact which seems not to be deterring Dave from rattling his sabre loudest over possible intervention in Libya. We won't have any aircraft to fly or pilots to fly them, but they're just details it seems.
As solutions to our problems, Conservatives around the country have suggested banning people from feeding the homeless and selling off the National Blood Service. Coming soon : Sterilising the poor and harvesting organs.
So, that was this week's roundup. I may not be able to do one next week as typing with my head in my hands is getting increasingly difficult.
